And here are the top 10 per US News & World Report:
|2013 Rank||School||2012 Rank|
|3||University of Pennsylvania (Wharton)||3|
|7||UC Berkeley (Haas)||7|
As you can see the changes are somewhere between slight and miniscule. Larger jumps and changes occurred outside the top 10, but the statistical significance of these changes becomes questionable due to fewer responses farther down the list.
And how “reliable” are these rankings? Wait a bit. We’ll be writing more on that.
